Summer Skin Regimen: Cleansing & Deep Hydration

As the temperatures rise and the sun shines brighter, our skin requires special care to stay healthy, hydrated, and radiant. Adjusting your skincare routine for the summer months is essential to maintain a fresh and glowing complexion. Here’s your comprehensive guide to a summer skin regimen focused on cleansing and deep hydration, featuring the unique benefits of NIANCE cleansers.

Summer Skincare Essentials: Cleansing and Exfoliation

Light yet Powerful, Non-Aggressive Exfoliation

Exfoliation in the summer should be gentle to avoid damaging the skin. Enzymatic peelings are an excellent choice, as they use enzymes to gently dissolve keratinized scales, making them suitable even for sensitive skin. Acidic peelings such as those with almond or milk acids can also be used, but it’s crucial to use SPF protection diligently and avoid sunbathing for 2-3 weeks after the procedure to prevent any potential UV damage.

Adapting Your Cleansing Skin Regimen for Summer

In the summer, it’s essential to adapt your skin cleansing routine to meet the changing needs of your skin. Here’s how to adjust your routine based on different skin types:

Normal Skin

If you typically use oil or balm cleansers with a dense texture during colder months, switch to lighter consistencies like foam or gel cleansers in the summer. This change helps avoid the heavy, greasy feeling that dense cleansers can leave during hot weather.

Dry and Sensitive Skin

Mousses and milks are ideal for dry and sensitive skin. Ensure that the cleansers do not leave a feeling of dryness and tightness. NIANCE Cleansing Milk RELAX, which features the Saccharide Isomerate Complex, is perfect for sensitive and aging skin. This complex boosts the expression of important genes for skin firmness and structure, offering significant anti-aging effects.

Oily Skin

For oily skin, gels and foams with a soft formula are best. These cleansers effectively remove excess oil without stripping the skin completely, which can lead to increased sebum production. Avoid over-cleansing to the point of squeaking clean, as this can trigger the sebaceous glands to produce more oil. NIANCE Cleansing Gel PURIFY, with its unique marine ingredient Arctalis™, is suitable for oily or acne-prone skin. Arctalis™ smooths wrinkles, firms the skin, restores hydration, and protects against digital pollution (blue light).

Combination Skin

Combination skin types should use products that do not dry out the dry areas of the face. Non-foaming emulsions, gels or lotions work well. Incorporating light peelings and cleansing masks once a week or every two weeks in your skin regimen can help absorb excess sebum and keep the skin balanced.

Ingredients to Avoid in Summer Cleansers

During the summer, certain ingredients should be avoided in your daycare cosmetics. Strong acids and igh concentrations of vitamin C can make the skin more sensitive to the sun and increase the risk of sunburn and irritation. Additionally, avoid cleansers with saponified oils and mechanical scrubs with large, hard particles, as these can cause microtears in the skin.

How Often Should You Cleanse Your Skin?

When planning for a vacation, it’s advisable to do a deep cleanse one week before leaving and another one seven to ten days after returning. The frequency of cleansing should be tailored to your skin type:

  • Oily Skin: You might need a course of several procedures over a month, then switch to a skin regimen of once every week.
  • Dry and Sensitive Skin: Reduce the number and frequency of cleansing sessions. Opt for enzyme peels such as NIANCE Cleansing Peeling ENERGIZE as a gentler alternative.

How to Cleanse Skin After SPF and Long-Lasting Makeup

Removing thick sunscreens and long-lasting makeup requires a two-stage cleansing process:

  • Makeup Remover: Use an oil-based makeup remover to dissolve the products effectively.
  • Cleanser: Follow with a gel or foam cleanser to thoroughly cleanse the skin.

Dealing with Clogged Pores and Oily Shine

Regular facial cleansing at a salon, combined with at-home use of cleansing masks and peels, can help manage clogged pores and oily shine. Use a toner and lightweight day cream with a mattifying effect after cleansing.  NIANCE Facial Tonic REFRESH has deep hydration and mattifying effect.  Furthermore it protects and strengthens skin’s microbiome.

Hydration: The Key to Summer Skincare
